Watch Mig Jiminez, owner of Ammo by Mig, talk more about his books a short video.
The book provides a good guide to the interior of the King Tiger to help with painting and detailing a model build , the photos are great both inside and outside of preserved King Tigers .
Service from the Tank Museum was first class.
Some really good colour references and lots of useful info on insignias, history etc in the Panzer DNA book but the staligrad book is half russian tanks which apart from winter white wash theyre all 4BO green so nothing useful here tbh. However the price from the tank museum was the cheapest available so happy overall
A very well laid out book great detail pictures and great links to model making kits with detail kits and paint options. This book will be a great addition to any other modelers collection. I have 4 tiger 1 models to build and look forward to using this and other related books for reference while choosing colours and options for the builds.
I bought this book as sometime soon, I'm going to purchase a 1/35 King Tiger model, and I really wanted ideas as to what paint scheme I am going to apply. There are lots of different paint options here, all shown in a great glossy pictures, all of which have been taken from actual King Tigers, that were abandoned and captured, and were then catalogued. Entirely useful if you wish to create an accurate scheme for the correct period tank.
There are lots of large colour photographs of actual Tigers in various collections, that show great close-ups of the exteriors and interiors of this big cat. Along with a few notes for modellers to take note of, with the view of adding subtle but important notes for the would-be modeller (adding the cable that attaches to the front headlight would be an example, some model kits omit this detail, so some would consider scratch-building one).
There is also a little information about this iconic vehicle, if so interested (which of course I was). Overall I think this is a great book that I was very happy to purchase.
As a side note, The Tank Museum's delivery of this publication was first rate, purchasing items from the museum is easy and in my opinion, superior to Amazon.
A full colour, image heavy publication using museum examples to give a very good walk around of the three main Panther variants. This is complemented by 47 colour profiles (a few are four view) giving a great selection of ideas for the modeller. There are also some colour variations of the main colours used both externally & internally, together with notes as to their use. Overall, an excellent reference & ideas source for the armour modeller.
